Putting the 'Good' in Goodbye


I don't know about you, but goodbyes are hard.
Every so often, you come across friendships or relationships that are so toxic, that the best thing you can do is walk away... and put the 'good' in goodbye. 

I'm a firm believer that you are not defined by the moments, but how you react upon the moments. Cutting off ties with someone you thought would never hurt you is tough. How do you walk away from that? All those memories you spent with someone, the secrets you've told that person, the moments you thought were perfect (keyword: thought) makes you question if you've simply wasted your time. While knowing that you had no sentimental value to that person.

Anger is just the start. You want to punch that person, you want to punch a wall, you want to punch something. How could this person do that to you? If anything, you're angry at yourself. For putting up with it for so long.

And then comes the hurt. They never apologized
Why? Because they feel as if they did nothing wrong.
They don't get it. They never will.
But it's too late.


The reason I wanted to share this little blurb today is because as someone who is very observant, I've seen a lot of things. Some in my life, some in others. But the point being, it's there. The toxicity of sacred friendships and relationships that don't know how to end... or take that step towards freedom. 

The first step is acknowledging you have to walk away. They won't ever get it, so you have to take that initiative. 


A lot of you have left me feedback about relatable content, and I wanted to share another one. If this relates to you in any way, I hope this encourages you to take that step towards a happier you. You deserve it. Or if you feel as though there's someone who needs to hear / read this, feel free to pass it along. Anyway, thanks for stopping by! Have a great Monday.
